Florida Lawmakers Enact No-fault Auto Insurance Change

Florida lawmakers earlier this year enacted the law that made numerous changes in benefits including $10,000 for emergency injuries and a cap of $2,500 for non-emergency medical services. The law also eliminated massage therapists and acupuncturists as medical providers who could be paid under a PIP policy.

Correspondingly, the law required insurance companies to reduce their rates, which has not happened. If you are injured in a car wreck it is more important than ever to immediately have an examination for your injuries as quickly as possible from the date of the car wreck. Do not wait for injuries to get progressively worse as you may jeopardize a portion of the no-fault benefits the Florida Legislature decided to cut from $10,000 to $2,500 under certain instances.
Once again, the insurance lobby dominates the Republican Legislature and gives a big fat gift to insurance companies.
